Sony just revealed its new virtual reality headset, Sony Project Morpheus ($TBA), at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The current iteration of the headset features 1080p resolution and a field of view of 90 degrees. Additional features include an accelerometer, gyroscope sensors, and tracking for head orientation and movement. The other cool thing is 3D audio that re-creates stereoscopic sounds. This basically means that as your head orientation changes so does the location of the audio. The morpheus will work with the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller and looks to hit stores some time this summer.

Guys like getting cool stuff. But getting cool stuff that comes in a wood crate, with a crowbar is on a entirely different level. Man Crates ($25-$180) offers a multitude of crates to fit every type of man. You've got your Clean Shave Crate, the Grill Master Crate, the Gamers Crate, the Whiskey Lover's Crate, and many others. One of my favorites is the Zombie Killers crate which comes with a real machete, axe, a couple of knives, a folding shovel and a ton of other stuff. You can't go wrong with a Man Crate.
Robbing a bank is not the smartest of ideas, and when it gets you mixed up with both the law and the mafia it was definitely not one of your best decisions. The Pope of Greenwich Village ($8) follows the adventures of Charlie and Paulie who decide to steal $15,000 as Paulie has been given a hot tip for a horse race. After the heist, however, they find themselves in deep trouble with the mob and the corrupt NYPD. Based on the book by Vincent Patrick, directed by Stuart Rosenberg and starring Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke and Daryl Hannah, this is one movie you need to see.
